<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>5 must haves for me:

Grand Funk Railroad - Grand Funk
Spirit - Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus
Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsies
Blue Cheer - Outside Inside
Clutch - Clutch<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=2 id=quote>

I was in Key West a year ago and there's a bar there (well, lots of them...) and a guy did an acoustic thing there every day in the afternoon... used to be in Spirit!!! Did an awesome version of Nature's Way acoustic (wonder why no one's covered that song?) That's all he does- makes a very good living doing it and so laid back down there... The bar is right next to Jimmy Buffett's studio which is right on the water, too.

Apart from the hurricane thing, Key West would probably be a great place to live...

Do you have the DVD of Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies live show?

Yeah, Spirit hasn't been covered because they are one of the most underrated bands. Led Zeppelin although did covers, when they were on their first North American tour, opening for Spirit. Also Taurus, from Spirits first album, is where Zeppelin got the idea for Stairway.

The Jimi DVD Band of Gypsys (Gypsies proper english) is amazing. Love the jam feel of the whole thing. Live Jimi at his best.

We do a cover of Spirit's "I Got a Line on You" in The Allens and most people think we wrote it!

let's see...

1. Ryan Adams - Love is Hell Pt. 1
2. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
3. Radiohead - I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings (its an extended EP)
4. Jesus and Mary Chain - Psycho Candy
5. Iron and Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days

The Beatle's Sgt. Pepper's and Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home would be on the list too if I'm allowed more than five. My tastes are eclectic, aren't they?

This was on my list originally, too... I love this record- but both of them. The record company really screwed up on this one- Love is Hell is overall a better (albeit darker) album than Rock and Roll although RNR was more accessible initially... now I like Love is Hell better.

If you're really into Ryna Adams, you might want to check this out- it's an ftp site where you can download quite a few live, bootleg shows of Ryan's, Jesse Malin, some Stones, etc. Pretty cool... I got the show that I went to for the fourth of July in Battery Park last year...

I used an ftp program to get in... don't knoiw about PC's but Fetch for the Mac worked great. Info:

On Jetplane landing, im not mad on the new material, i dont like how Andrew uses his voice anymore and the new guitarist seems to musshy up the whole thing.

Look ive even done the hard work for ya just click here,http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... 76-3933204to buy it!!

...once the crying had stopped you mean!

1 Physical Graffitti - Led Zeppelin
2 Led Zeppelin I - Led Zeppelin
3 The Datsuns - The Datsuns
4 Outta Sight/Outta Mind - The Datsuns
5 LA Woman - The Doors

I keep meaning to start a T.Rex collection, Electric Warrior. I had a best of album somewhere but I can't find it at the moment. So Electric Warrior is a good place to start?


<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=2 id=quote>

Yes, it's the definitive T.Rex album. Albums I wouldn't recommend for the casual listener are Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow, Bolan's Zip Gun, Futuristic Dragon and maybe Dandy in the Underworld.
A best of Album is definitely worth getting in addition, if you're into the singles. The single material sometimes was quite different from the album stuff, since it was designed for a different market. Also many rare b-sides are worth listening.
